Good afternoon.>> Earlier, Cecilia asked the President, is Russia still targeting the US?>> Is Russia still targeting the US, Mr. President?>> Thank you very much. No.>> Press, let's go, make your way out.>> No, you don't believe that to be the case?>> Let's go, we're finished.
>> He said no. Is that what the President actually believes? Did he understand the question?>> We had a chance to speak with the President after those comments, and the President said thank you very much and was saying no to answering questions. The President and his administration are working very hard to make sure that Russia is unable to meddle in our elections.
>> He does believe it's going on.>> Well, since there's currently not an election today, not specifically. But we certainly believe that we are taking steps to make sure they can't do it again, unlike previous administrations.>> Well, why should this President have any credibility to Americans in what he says, if in fact 24 hours later, or in this case, 3 hours later, the White House comes out and says, just kidding?
>> First of all, that's not what I said. I was interpreting what the President's intention was, and stating the administration's policy. It's not exactly what you just explained. We never said, just kidding.
